Date guide: 1940-44
1940 - 1944, I think, rather than 1914.

I would endorse this as a Second World War photo. Judging by the age of these men, many are probably Great War veterans. It would be of great interest to me - and many others no doubt - if their names could traced. If you can shed some light, please contact this website.

My Grandfather Patrick Horace Fennessy (born 1899) was a member of the Skipton Home Guard in World War II. I think he is the man, second from left on top row.

Think a relative of mine is on here but difficult to tell for sure (I only knew him when he was a good bit older). Would it be possible to see a list of names so I can be sure?

Yes, this is the WWII. The officer is my maternal grandfather, Richard Wood. I don't know much about his army career but he reached the rank of Major in the Duke of Wellington's Regiment and was at the Relief of Ladysmith in the Boer War.
